Against Former Tara Kindergarten development - PAN: 62106/APP/2021/2555

We the undersigned petition Hillingdon Council to Re Planning Application No 62106/APP/2021/2555 We, the undersigned, are opposed to the plans to demolish the one storey, 1930's former telephone exchange building in Cross Road. The building is a community resource. It has been used as a nursery (Class E) and now a faith group (Class F). It is to be replaced with a contemporary, flat roofed, 4 storey building comprising 9 flats with space for 32 residents. The design is out of keeping with the local area. It would be built in a cul-de-sac at the end of a one-track road.

What is it we want?
1. To reject the proposed plan to demolish a local non-designated heritage building and replace it with a contemporary 4 storey building.
2. Recognise that this plan does not fit into the Uxbridge South Rockingham Bridge Conservation Area in terms of style, appearance, and residential density. It does not enhance or preserve its character.
3. Ensure the oak trees around the site, which give huge benefits to the environment and humans alike, are protected and live their full life span.
4. Recognise that, although the proposed new building will have S106 status re parking permits, in our experience, residents with such restrictions still own cars and park them in our already congested roads outside of Parking Permit times.

On reaching 20 signatures it may be considered in conjunction with the relevant live planning application at an upcoming Committee meeting. The Council's Democratic Services Team will be in touch with the lead petitioner to advise and take this petition forward accordingly.
